A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

University Police Department's Video Wall

In 2004, the University Police Department took a leap into the world of technology. Chief James Chapman made the decision to better the squad’s ability to do their jobs by calling upon Information Technology Services.

This past September ITS partnered with the UPD to build a “Video Wall” inside the UPD headquarters.

The “video wall” consists of 6 TV’s stacked on top of each other along side a wall. The screens are wired to security cameras placed throughout campus, which project through the video wall.

The video wall has allowed university policemen to keep a close eye on multiple parts of campus in one area.
